Hi

If you are accused by a Member of public of calling them something you did not and it is your word against theirs. Can you be disciplined or fired? There are no witnesses?

Where did this happen, and why is it related to HR employment law? Did you call them what they are alleging you called them? What happened from your perspective?

Need more details I'm afraid.

You shouldn't be disciplined if it's a one off. If a history or pattern appears then yes they can take action against you.
Employment law states it has to have 51% probability to result in disciplinary action

Thanks Thanks


what did you call them?
More details pls... intriguing!
Remember if the work decides to go down the discipline route without a witness for a first time incident, take a union rep with you. Any rep worth their salt should have any action taken against you, dropped.

How long have you been at the company OP?, within the first two years they could get rid of you for any reason they like.

But would need some more context to advise any further, one thing to note, the HR dept is there to protect the company and not the staff, I discovered that when I was accused of racism during a recruitment process and the Union rep can be a good idea, but IME I have found that most reps couldn't negotiate their way out of a wet paper bag.
I know more than the union rep I bought in once reminds me I need to cancel
Unions are waste of time and money. We have one person at work who pays into a union and if they have a problem it’s I’m calling the union lol, the company doesn’t recognise unions so absolute waste of mo

Not so.
Depends on far more detail that the op hasn't given us.

I said you shouldn't be disciplined, not that you can't be disciplined, there is a difference. It is all down to the detail that is omitted.
